Abstract

Soil properties can buffer forest response to global climate change. However, it is unclear how soil characteristics, water availability and their interactions can affect drought response of trees. The aim of this study was to assess the influence of soil nutrients and physical soil properties on...

Abstract

Mediterranean ecosystems have been impacted for millennia by human practices, particularly agricultural and pastoral activities. Since the middle of the nineteenth century, land-use abandonment has lead to scrubland and forest expansion, especially in mountain areas of the northern Mediterranean...

Abstract

In most dendrochronological studies, climate-growth relationships are established on dominant trees to minimize non-climatic signals. However, response to environmental factors may be affected by tree-size, which begs the question of the representativeness of dominant trees on the stand level. To...

Abstract

Three hundred and seventy-seven tree-ring width site chronologies including all eight principal forest tree species within Central Europe (5° to 15°E; 43° to 53°N) are expressed as Cropper-values and mapped using a Geographical Information System (here after referred to as GIS). Spatial...

Abstract

The present forest cover of the highest mountain on the Balkan peninsula was shaped after the last glaciation. The complex character of forest dynamics at different altitudes was traced with the help of pollen and plant macrofossil analyses of peat and lake sediments, supplemented with a detailed...

Abstract

An analysis was made of core samples taken from 128 Fagus sylvatica, 99 Picea abies, 65 Pinus sylvestris, 21 Abies alba, 16 Larix decidua and 24 Fraxinus excelsior on 10 sites in a limited area near Bern, Switzerland. Negative and positive indicator years were determined, and attempts made to...

Abstract

Studies were made on the ring-widths back to 1850 in disks of 542 Norway spruce [Picea abies], 140 silver fir [Abies alba] , 124 Scots pine [Pinus sylvestris] and 128 beech [Fagus sylvatica] in SW Germany. Negative and positive indicator years (event-years) were determined, and these are listed in...

Abstract

After a brief historical review of literature, the author deals with the material studied-chiefly Beech and Norway Spruce, but also some Oak (Quercus robur), Ash (Fraxinus excelsior), Alder (Alnus glutinosa), Silver and Douglas Firs, Sitka Spruce, Scots Pine and Juniperus communis, all grown in...
